The rapper’s son is all grown up now and he cannot believe it! T.I. tried his best to keep his emotions in check as he took a pic of 18-year-old Messiah and his date before they headed to prom!
He took to social media to share the photo today, captioning it: ‘My how time flies! I remember bringing this young Man home from the hospital in an 85’ suburban with 12’ woofers in the back beating Tupac’s ‘Hail Mary’ on repeat and… look at him now! He and his beautiful date look exquisite. I am proud of you young man! Love you dearly. #ProudPops.’
The boy has actually acknowledged the very special meaning of Tupac in his life before.
On June 16 last year, when the rapper would have turned 46 years old, Messiah posted a clip of him rapping along to Tupac’s Me Against the World, writing: ‘My dad says whenever I cried as a baby, he would ride me in the back of his truck blasting ‘Hail Mary’ and I would be alright. Happy Birthday. You’re leaving us. You’re going nowhere.’
Just a few months ago, the proud father and mother Tiny Harris were celebrating his 18th birthday and now he’s even going to prom!
No wonder Tip struggled to keep his overflowing joy in check as he watched his teen son turn into a man right before his eyes, all suited up!
Back on February 3, Tiny shared a pic of Messiah looking just as dapper, captioning it: ‘Happy birthday to our oldest son. He is such a handsome, well-groomed gentleman and I am proud to have been in his life for 17 years. Cannot believe you are 18 now. Love you to the moon and back.’
